    I’ve Discovered Knitting

    I’ve finished my 1st ever cardigan and I’ve absolutely loved learning to knit with Cardigang. I’ve tried to learn previously but always given up in frustration. I can’t wait to start my next knit - the hard part will be deciding what fabulous kit to choose next.

    So much fun

    Great easy cardigan to make. Had some difficulties trying to figure out how to join the sleeves as the video instructions provided were for a different stitch. I still managed to work out a way to do it seamlessly.

    I’m hooked!

    First time knitter here and it’s safe to say I am hooked! It took a while to get the hang of things and I wish the videos showed more of the “real basics” such as which hole to poke the needle through and how to knit the second row. But once I got into it, the rest of the cardi was a breeze. I found myself knitting every night and it was a relaxing and therapeutic process. I followed the M size guide and knitted 2 extra rows on the sleeves, but I should have lengthened them by 6 rows to make them extra baggy. I swapped 1x ball of Baby Blues out for Bolting Blue to knit the cuffs a different colour like the Helen Cardi. I get compliments on my cardigan all the time and it’s the perfect layer to wear in winter since the wool is so thick and cozy! Can’t wait to knit a hundred more 🧶

    Perfect for Beginners

    I had knitted like one scarf when I was a teen, I am in my 30s now, so only knew how to cast on and a basic stitch. I used the you-tube video's for what I didn't know and got all of the information I needed. I would next time start with the cotton over the merino, as the merino is prone to breaking apart and sheds a bit. (as to be expected)

Your fluffy masterpiece is just a few clicks away. Customise your kit with your fave, mood-boosting colours.

Our online resources and support take you through every step, stitch-by-stitch.

FAQS

Your kit comes will all the gear you need to make your masterpiece.

Inside your kit you'll find:

- Yarn in your chosen colours

- Incredibly easy to follow instructions including links to life-saving video tutorials (because accidents happen)

- A "Made by me" tag to proudly affix to your custom creation

- A needle or hook pack. We give you the option to remove this from your kit incase you already have the tools you need.

Yes, you’ll see that the needles or hook needed for that kit comes pre-selected as part of the kit inclusions.

As long as you keep them ticked, you'll get the needles or hook included, but if you un-tick the option then we won’t pack them in your kit - we’ve made them optional because some people already have the tools they need and don’t want more sent out. 

Total Beginner - Experience: none at all.

These kits are perfect for anyone who's learning for the first time or wants a simple project. They all only use a few techniques and are easy to master. 

Easy - Experience: maybe you've knitted a scarf before... or something just as simple.

These kits are a little more spicy and you'll learn a few more techniques than Total Beginner kits.

Intermediate - Experience: already knitted a few jumpers or similar before and ready for a new challenge.

These ones are our most complex styles, and while still relatively easy, they are best suited to someone who's got the basics down pat.
